Honiton runner Higginson returns to racing with good effort at the Haytor Heller run
Four Honiton runners headed to Dartmoor to run the Haytor Heller run, weites Judy Davey.
This is a six-mile tough off-road run that starts halfway up Haytor, heads along and up Hound Tor before a nice, but rocky descent.
Then a final climb up Haytor leads to a downhill finish.
The weather was hot, but there was a welcome breeze.
Ian Stewart was the first Honiton runner in coming 16th in a fantastic time of 46.58.
